Remember when LSU’s super team ran the tables of college football back in 2019?
That feels like a distant memory now.
Everybody on this planet thought that the 2019 season meant the Tigers were back. The band was playing “Neck” to the student section, Odell Beckham Jr. was throwing money to players after the National Championship, and Ed Orgeron looked like he was officially the golden boy of LSU football.
Well, that didn’t last long.
Coach O’s LSU team underachieved with a ton of talent last season, going 5-5 and missing out on a bowl game due to a self-imposed “bowl ban” amidst an NCAA investigation (convenient that they banned themselves in a season when they were 5-5).
Then to start out the 2021 season, the Tigers took a surprising L to UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday by a score of 38-27. Orgeron has seemingly fallen from grace, going from the King’s throne to the hot seat in only two short years.
